I'm not going to lie. The island in this kitchen renovation had me at hello. And while the overall feel of the kitchen skews just slightly more traditional than I might opt for in my own kitchen addition, it has a very similar feel to the one I'm working on for my sister and her family. What I'm diggin the most is that enormous depth to the working island and the contrast in materials between the wood and the stone. I dream of countertop depths like this one, and that deep custom sink with the integral drying rack in the back is perfect for baking. I'm always rinsing off measuring cups to resuse a little later, and they then sit on kitchen towels taking up useable counter space.
Maybe I have dream kitchens on the brain because I'm cranking out a cookie job this week on my standard depth / no island kitchen counters.
